Certified AMGA and IFMGA Guided Backcountry Ski Trips in Crested Butte, Colorado.
Located in the heart of the Elk Mountains of Western Colorado, and in what is still referred to as ‘Colorado’s Last Great Ski Town’ of Crested Butte, the backcountry here has been our backyard and number one ski destination for the past 15 years and for good reason.
Limitless terrain, copious Colorado powder to ski, a thriving backcountry touring community, and easy access with 5 different trailheads located just minutes from downtown Crested Butte, make the backcountry surrounding Crested Butte, Colorado a worthwhile ski destination.
This place has been our home for good reason. At our core, we’re skiers and boarders at Lotus Alpine Adventures, and the Crested Butte area has weaved its way into the fabric of what we do for good reason! There are not many places like this one, where the backcountry community is so tight knit, and where we have so many different options to feed our soul just minutes from our doorsteps.
Beautiful, champagne Colorado powder, or silky smooth Spring corn skiing all lies just outside town limits, with tours of varying difficulties to always allow for the right and safe objective no matter what someone’s skill level is.
Add in a day or two on the famous Extreme Limits slopes of Crested Butte Mountain Resort and/or a day of snowcat skiing with Irwin Guides and a trip to Crested Butte is sure to satiate your skiing or snowboarding desire!
Let us show you our backyard, and allow us to use our intimate knowledge of the surrounding terrain and snow conditions to provide you with a truly unique backcountry ski or snowboard touring experience you truly won’t forget!
All trips run through a partnership with Irwin Guides.
